(the) duty intensivist (was) notified
Explanation:
An "intensivista" is a specialist in intensive care medicine, also known as critical care medicine. Such a specialist is called an "intensivist":

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicina_intensiva#Médicos_e_I...

"Intensive care medicine, or critical care medicine, is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions that may require sophisticated life support and monitoring. [...] Physicians with training in critical care medicine are referred to as intensivists"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intensive_care_medicine

https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/explore-roles/doctors/roles...

"De guardia" means the one (or one of those) on duty at the time:

"no patient in my hospital is allowed the luxury of death unless it is authorised by the duty intensivist. "
https://ics152.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/the-future-intensivi...

The Spanish is expressed in the "historical present", referring to the past; you would use a past tense in English.

On the following bit, "entra a BOX REA", it's a separate clause (it's quite common for these things to be run together without punctuation in medical notes like this. It means that the patient was put in the/a resuscitation cubicle. BOX means a cubicle and REA means reanimación.

If you are translating into American English you may want to use "bay" for "BOX" rather than "cubicle"; see the question cited.

agree  Chema Nieto Castañón: Tal cual. Con las limitaciones propias de un no nativo: Immediate referral/report [notification] to the duty intensivist. Patient brought to resuscitation bay [cubicle]. According to patient...

  -> Muchas gracias, Chema :-) Creo que lo dejaría en notify/notification. Es un preaviso; entiendo que se pone al intensivista sobre aviso, por si tiene que intervenir; para "referral" hay otros verbos, como derivar.

agree  Manuel Cedeño Berrueta: Excellent, Charles! I love this sentence: "no patient in my hospital is allowed the luxury of death unless it is authorised by the duty intensivist. "
